      BA (Hons) Fashion Graphics

      My role enabled me to use my graphic design skills, as well as do some visual merchandising and have a go at mural painting. I even got to trade with Re:So at Victorious Festival in Southsea. My time at Re:So has broadened my knowledge of working in the fashion industry and has allowed me to step out of my comfort zone in both personal and creative aspects.

      BA (Hons) Fashion Management with Marketing

      The role has given me so many opportunities including going on a buying trip, being a part of pop-up stores and helping with styling for a catwalk show hosted by Gok Wan. During my time here I have found that I have interests in visual merchandising and marketing. Now I feel prepared to go out and use the knowledge I’ve learnt, and I’m excited to continue further improving my skills after Re:So.

      BA (Hons) Fashion Promotion and Communication

      I was sent the visual merchandising (VM) work-based learning job vacancy from the head of my course and I applied straight away, as VM is something I’ve always been really interested in. I enjoyed my time at Re:So as I got to put up some pop-up shops - the one at Victorious Festival was my highlight of the whole experience. In fact, I loved working at Re:So so much that I am now staying on as the part of the visual merchandising team.
